Thanks in advanced

Can I grab a copy of 3004 WiFi modded bios?

Thanks for trying to help me! Unfortunately it's a no go, the dry run works but the real flashing not.
A real shame since there are reports of people using a 320chipset for OC'ing and on the specific page of my motherboard it says with later bioses in the description '3. Following AMD SPEC to remove BIOS OC option.'

I'm comfortable with flashing, not with actual bios modding. I messed around a bit with the program linked in the first post but it's too hard for me.
Using Pstate doesn't work, with higher multi the fsb just lowers so it's still at standard speed

I have an Asrock A320M-DVS R4.0 with a Ryzen 1200.

Unless you have a really good chip then there is no way your getting 4.3-4.4 on all cores. I have the 2700x and the latest AGESA update from ASUS/AMD and I can still only get about 4.1 all core with a custom loop. Honestly if you want high CPU core clocks go for one of the new Ryzen 9 chips and drop it in your board if it supports it, you should be able to unlock the PCIE 4.0 lanes as well if your board supports it.

EDIT: on that note I can get around 4300mhz by setting the CPU clocks to 4000mhz and the FSB to 106ish mhz. Try that out and see if you have any improvement

Ciao Vento, I was able to do a partial mod ( unlocking menu items ) on the latest RSB350F5204 with AMIBCP 5.02.0023 ( was the one I had in that moment, 31 will do too). I didn't updated SMU because 1st it was already updated relatively to the Tutorial and 2nd because I "think" (I've been way from PC's for some time, so I'm trying to get updated ) it is for Matisse CPU's. I still have Summit Ridge CPU's and I don't know the search KEY for them to apply the respective mod. You can safely use UBU for updating CPU mCode, GOP, OPROM etc..

All my personal modded BIOSes "obey" to the fowling method for keeping original serial#, UUID , MACs, etc, and get rid of the CAPSULE header:

1- AFUWINGUI dump motherboard original BIOS to backup all info and later if needed to be FD44Edited ( ex. when I want to flash a @1usmus modded BIOS) .

2- EZFLASH updated original BIOS version.

3- AFUWINGUI dump BIOS.

4- MOD dumped BIOS.

5- AFUGAN modded BIOS.

Use a dumped BIOS to do 1 or 2 changes with AMIBCP to see if it works, if it do... then go for the rest

PS: Hope your exams' went well



If i undesrstood correctly this method safes the digital signature ?



Can EZFlash be used with this method ?


greetings

Fire Lion Hey. Maybe someone will help with the asus tuf x570 wifi.
I tried to make a backup of the BIOS through flashrom:

flashrom.exe -p internal -r tuf.bin

The backup is saved and I edit it through AMIBCP- I turn on the visibility of the BCLK points for example.

Then flashing my BIOS:

flashrom.exe -p internal -w tuf.bin
Found chipset "AMD FP4/FP5/AM4" with PCI ID 1022:790e.
Enabling flash write... SPI base address is at 0xfec10000
Found Winbond flash chip "W25Q256JW" (32768 kB, SPI) mapped at physical address 0xfe000000.
Chip status register is 0x00.
This chip may contain one-time programmable memory. flashrom cannot read
and may never be able to write it, hence it may not be able to completely
clone the contents of this chip (see man page for details).
Flash image seems to be a legacy BIOS. Disabling coreboot-related checks.
Block protection is disabled.
Reading old flash chip contents... done.
Erase/write done.
Verifying flash... VERIFIED.
Restoring MMIO space at fe810022
Restoring MMIO space at fe810000

And my changes in AMIBCP do not apply.

OneB1t is it possible to crossflash bios from ASUS PRIME B350M-E to ASUS PRIME A320M-K?
or it is going to fail miserable? :-D

im waiting for 1.8V CH341 adapter from aliexpress

EDIT: decided to give it go without adapter so i selected B350M-E BIOS as donor as it looks nearly same as A320M-K (only difference i can think of is vrm and DVI port)
Operation was sucessfull using AFUWIN with no-check ID option selected i flashed all blocks except EC which is write protected (which is maybe problem i have with OC :-/)
https://www.overclock.net/forum/atta...318206&thumb=1
MB is booting up as B350M-E and i can install AI SUITE3 inside system and lower multiplier with it (also new option for overclock appeared inside bios)

but overclock of my 200GE is still not working for some reason i can go lower clocks on GPU using https://github.com/FlyGoat/RyzenAdj and lower multiplier on CPU using AI SUITE3 but higher values are still ignored :-(
any idea?

AMD Ryzen master is unable to do anything (not even lower multiplier or GPU clock)



EDIT2: LOL i just managed to somehow overclock my GPU but i have no idea how that happened so this is probably first VEGA 3 inside 200GE running OC
